Faculty Overview
Prior to joining Clemson, Dr. Anctil worked as a Research Associate at the National Photovoltaic Environmental Research Center at Brookhaven National Laboratory where she worked on the environmental impact of large-scale photovoltaic power plants and resource availability of critical metals for solar technologies. Dr. Anctil's major research interest is in sustainable energy, in particular photovoltaics, where she uses life cycle assessment to identify the main issues of current technologies and propose alternative solutions. A primary focus of her work is in the environmental impact of nanomaterials and fine chemicals for energy applications, in particular as it relates to reducing the impact of industrial production.
